Afternoon in Sandy Hill & Byward Market

Big beautiful peonies on Russell ave. in Sandy Hill.

Bought another poem from Crazy Dave on the Byward Market called 'Treading Water'.

What a perfect day for a street party in Chinatown. Lots of happy people with maps in hand seeking their next stop, a hair salon, a Vietnamese subshop, a restaurant or even a foodmarket, the art was everywhere.
Here are some of the highlights - there is so much more to see - so get on your bike and come on down to Chinatown. Big thank you to Don and his dedicated volunteers! Show runs until June 18!
